Your article “Abused wives in India pin hope on anti-violence law” (Page 1, Monday) is biased, laced with anti-male rhetoric and uses make-believe statistics. No 2005 U.N. Population Fund report found that 70 percent of married women in India were victims of beatings or rape. This ‘statistic’ is completely fabricated.

The article ignores the well-documented fact that in India, women are twice as likely as men to engage in partner violence: http://pubpages.unh.edu/~mas2/ID41E2.pdf. The story is so systematically flawed that it resembles a propaganda piece. The Washington Times should promptly retract this article and do a follow-up article that tells the truth about domestic violence.
